SGL Group and ExOne Aim to Make Carbon Ready for the 3D-Printing Market

Thursday, March 29, 2018

Beside constantly developing its current product solutions and cultivating growth markets, SGL Group is continuously working on additional future growth areas for carbon and graphite material applications. One very promising area is 3D-printing of components made of carbon.

3D-printing describes the building of individual layers of material into three-dimensional parts based on a digital file, without tooling or machining. SGL Group is bringing carbon and graphite components created using 3D-binder jet printing technology provided by ExOne to the market under the brand name CARBOPRINT®. Colaboration between the companies is founded in expertise from both sides: SGL Group offers extensive knowledge on the raw material and powder preparation, as well as versatile technologies for post-processing carbon components. As the leading supplier for industrial binder jetting technology, ExOne contributes its competences in 3D-printing. This technology enables not only the production of small prototypes, but also efficient serial production and fast development of customer-specific solutions.
